Compagnie Thor
Thierry Smits, Artistic Director
 
"Irresistibly sensual and colorful"
--The Bulletin (Brussels, Belgium)
 
Belgium-based Compagnie Thor makes its DC debut with Artistic Director and choreographer Thierry Smits's D'ORIENT, born out of his passion for the Middle East. Following a number of trips to the Arab world, Smits brought back images flooded with light, filled with sensuality and generosity, beauty and disorder. The piece does not attempt any political analysis; it was inspired by characteristics of a civilization, by its people, traditions, myths, and dreams with the goal of interpreting them through contemporary dance.
